Wedding at Cana

Tintoretto, Wedding at Cana, 1561, Oil on canvas, , 435 x 545 cm, Venice, Basilica of Santa Maria della Salute

This large canvas by Tintoretto comes from the refectory of the suppressed Convent of the Crucifers. The composition, adapting the usual horizontal set up, converges on Christ at the head of the table at the very back. At the front, the large figures of the servants move around the amphorae, an element that enables us to identify the subject, that is, the Miracle of the transformation of water into wine narrated in the Gospel of John.
